As noted in the HGB monthly statistics
thread, Kitely's land area on 17 February 2017 was 14,606 standard region equivalents, an increase of 173 over the January HGB number of 14,433.
Tyche Shepherd's SL Grid Survey
reports that, from 18 December to 15 January to 19 February, the number of private estate regions changed from 16,777 to 16,683, a decrease of 94 regions.
Kitely's land area is now 87.55%
of the land area covered by SL's private estate regions.

Tyche Shepherd reports the total main grid size as 23,920 regions (7,237 Linden owned + 16,683 private estates). So Kitely's current land area is 61.06%
of SL's total main grid area.
For comparison, the biggest OpenSim grid, OSgrid (Kitely is currently second biggest in land area), has 21,541 region equivalents, which is 90.05% of SL's total main grid area.
This means that the total land area of just the two biggest OpenSim grids (36,147) is already half as big again as SL's current main grid area.
HGB reports that OpenSim as a whole (both closed and hypergrid-enabled grids) has 74,727 region equivalents; so OSgrid and Kitely together account for 48.37% of the total OpenSim land area
